(July 10, 2012)

SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/10/12 -- ServiceMesh, provider of the industry's only enterprise-grade cloud management platform, today announced that it has teamed with Apprenda, Cloud Cruiser and Derdack, with sponsorship from Microsoft, to create a comprehensive set of cloud enablement solutions named the Private Cloud Solutions Suite (PCSS). By collective effort, the team that created PCSS offers Systems Integrators (SIs) an enhanced market solution for building private clouds using the Microsoft stack that eliminates stop gaps and enables full-spectrum delivery of enterprise private cloud capabilities to customers. Strategically aligned with Microsoft System Center, Hyper-V and Windows Server, PCSS ensures that SIs can attract new revenue from enterprise customers and deliver on outstanding private cloud project commitments.

"Private Cloud Solutions Suite is strategically important to Microsoft private cloud and System Center as our ISV Partner Solutions enhance Microsoft's industry leadership.

PCSS is comprised of Microsoft ecosystem ISVs Apprenda, Cloud Cruiser, Derdack and ServiceMesh and tackles strategically important areas in the world of Microsoft private cloud and System Center. Private Cloud Solutions Suite covers all aspects of private cloud, ranging from:

  • Private Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and cloud management tools; and,
  • Private Platform as a Service (PaaS) focused on productivity and cloud outcomes for enterprise software developers.

A collection of SIs worked as a sounding board during the creation of PCSS and were excited about finally having a fully scoped, one-stop-shop solution that enables them to extend next-generation, best of breed private cloud capabilities to their customers. "With the explosive growth in private cloud demand, it's important that systems integrators and consultants such as ourselves have access to best-of-breed technologies to properly implement private cloud for our customers," said Raymond Chou, Owner of RedDynamics Asia Sdn Bhd.
